This 18 AWG 8 conductor vinyl nylon tray cable (VNTC), also known as PVC/Nylon, is a general purpose 600 volt shielded control cable for use where shielding from electro-static interference is required in power, control and lighting circuits. It is suitable for a broad range of commercial and industrial uses.
The Exposed Run (ER) rating on this cable means it meets crush and impact testing requirements, and is therefore tough enough to run outside a cable tray without additional protection, unlike standard tray cables which must be installed inside a conduit, raceway or other protection.
